Happy 50th Birthday to Miss Walker!
Year 4 managed to get 100% attendance every day last week!
We had planned a trip to the park, but because of the thunder and lightening, unfortunately we couldn’t go.
Instead we watched Hotel Transylvania with popcorn, juice and kitkats 📹🍫🍿.
Year 4 investigated how sound travels through solids today by creating their own string telephones.
They found out that when someone talks, this caused the cup to vibrate and that the sound energy travelled through the string to the next cup.
Year 4 had a lovely day at Sandhaven Beach creating two different sandcastles, with a theme of ‘a better world’.
One group created a sandcastle inspired by the story of Noah’s Ark.
The other group focused on how everyone should be treated equally.
Well done Year Four for your amazing class assembly on ‘Wilderness School’.
On Thursday the weather was drizzly and cold, so in the morning we stayed inside. Our class investigated seashore food chains and learned new key words. We created a mobile in class that showcased what we had learned about food chains.
The rain cleared up, so we walked to the beach and hunted for seashore creatures and plants. We created a tally so that we could remember all of the different types of seaweed we had identified in the rock pools.
After that, we created statues using the flattest rocks that we could find.
On our way home, we had some spare time so played in Laura’s Park for 5 minutes. We all had a lovely day!
Today, the class was lucky enough to experience Wilderness School@Souter again.
First, Mr O’Brien told the children the story about the fog horn monster.
The children then toasted marshmallows on a fire.
After this, the children made sea monsters out of rocks.
The children particpated in a rock throwing competition and tried to skim rocks across the sea.
We then walked up to the top of Souter lighthouse.
Our year four and five children have the privilege of being coached by members of the Newcastle Falcons rugby team; a super experience for them over the next few Wednesdays, where the children will learn rugby skills, teamwork and have fun.
Our Year Four children started a five-session course at Wilderness School. For the next five Thursdays the class will do their maths English and science lessons outside at Souter.
Today the children took part in a treasure hunt using co-ordinates on a map to help locate tokens hidden around the Leas and the lighthouse. The children then make smugglers hats and did some written exercises on co-ordinates. They wrote up their experience of the day when they returned.
If your child came home with a strange hat, then don’t worry: they made their own smugglers hat.
